Web Blocker

Keep end users secure with WebTitan's web-blocking ability, designed for MSP’s, businesses, and the education sector.

Web blocking, also known as web filtering, or content filtering is used to create a defensive barrier for users against advanced security threats and preventing access to certain websites. Such websites may be offensive, inappropriate, or high-risk to security threats.

WebTitan DNS Filter prevents access to specified websites and harmful domains.  WebTitan is used as a method to control internet access for various clients, no matter the industry or sector.

Why is Web Blocking Important?

Web blocking is an important element of a web content filtering solution for many reasons. Here are the top critical reasons why organizations must have a web blocking solution:

  • Employee Internet Management

Web blocking allows organizations to manage their employee’s access to unsuitable websites. Employee internet management is essential for managing compliance requirements, bandwidth usage, or other business concerns.

  • CIPA Compliance

K12 schools in the US are required to use a web content filter to prevent minors from being exposed to obscene visual content. In order to receive e-Rate funding, CIPA compliance is a requirement.

  • Cybersecurity

A web content filter can drastically improve the security of an organization by blocking access to websites that are high-risk or recognized as dangerous, thus blocking all harmful malware such as phishing, viruses, ransomware & malicious sites

  • Bandwidth Management

Some organizations network performance can be significantly reduced due to the overuse of bandwidth. Websites such as YouTube, Netflix etc. can be blocked or restricted to reduce bandwidth usage.

  • Productivity Management

A DNS filter solution with web blocking abilities enables organizations to block access to distracting websites such as social media platforms, computer games, and video streaming services.

  • Legal Liability

Web blocking is critical to prevent access to inappropriate content such as porn, grotesque imagery, violence, and profanity. Organizations have a legal liability to block underage users from accessing adult content and to reduce the potential for internet abuse to cause a hostile work environment.
